TAPPUAH or BETH-TAPPUAH, a city in Palestine, upon the mountains of Judah, not far from Hebron, which Robinson identifies with the ancient village of Teffûh, lying in the midst of olivegroves and vineyards. (Josh. 15.53; Robinson, Bibl. Res. vol. ii. p. 71, 2nd ed.) There was another Tappuah in the plain of Judah (Josh. 15.34); but which of these was the place conquered by Joshua, cannot be determined. (Josh. 12.17.)
